Registration is closed
Section A: This 11 session, three hour class meets Thursday evenings 6:30-9:30pm from September 21, 2017 through December 7, 2017. Class will not meet November 23 of Thanksgiving week.

This class is for intermediate level drawers and painters who want to work primarily from the figure. I will typically give exercises during the first hour to help students loosen up and to encourage experimentation. Students will typically run their own show during hours 2 and 3, though I will continue discussing process issues through the whole class. There will be figure models nearly every session. New painters who want to do Introductory Painting exercises should wait until the Winter or Summer Intro Painting terms to enroll in painting.

Students who have never taken Phil's classes should first take the Intro Drawing class even if experienced. I have had exhibiting artists with MFAs take the Intro class and say that they have never done anything like it and that it really helped their work. 

Materials: For the first session, painters should bring some acrylic colors you like, acrylic titanium white, acrylic gloss gel medium, some cheap brushes about 3/4 to 1 inch wide, and any shape palette knife. We will begin painting on the studio paper, so no canvasses are necessary. Drawers only need to bring graphite, charcoal, and erasers. Paper will always be provided.
